I'm with coco fo sho sho

I think this is really an NBC issue and not as much about Jay Leno.

Leno didn't want to leave The Tonight Show but NBC made a promise to Conan or Conan would leave.

So did Conan force Jay off the show in the first place?

NBC is the only one to blame here. They obviously suck at managing contracts, people and TV schedules.

But in the end, I do support Coco. Leno is pretty terrible.

This about Leno. From what I remember, he told NBC when he wanted to retire. NBC made the arrangements to avoid another Letterman/Leno situation. Leno changed his mind. At least that's what I remember. But like Roger Clemens I can definitely misremember things.

Leno is the one looking bad here. NBC looks bad, but except for Must See Thursdays and the late night lineup, NBC has always looked bad.

It also begs the question,
how would Leno have done if Carson took a 10:00 show. Probably not very well.

Coco....Go back to 12:30.

McNulty: viewers would have turned to an unheard of new invention, to all the lead-in talk, the remote control ;)

I'd guess though that Leno at the oddly timed post-:35 schedule likely did draw notably more viewers to their affiliate evening news than as being on a commonly 10-11 p.m. scheduled show perfectly timed against everything else.

Today's blogs are reporting that the 11:35 spot has been given back to Leno - not the best choice but the safe choice in NBC's eyes. He will grab back the 50+ years olds that Conan lost...unfortunate.
